Tammy is the owner of Austin Urban Retreat. Tammy’s fascination with skin care began in her early 20’s, when she received her first facial from a professional esthetician from Hungary. This experience sparked a desire to learn all that she could about helping others improve their skin, and from this day forward Tammy knew that esthetics was her undeniable passion.
After successful completion of her esthetics training at the Aveda Institute in Houston, TX, Tammy worked the first ten years of her career at high-end Day and Medi Spas. During this time she sought out more advanced courses in order to fine-tune her craft. This advanced training helped Tammy climb to the top of her industry. Tammy always knew that she wanted to return to Austin, TX and open a non-pretentious Day Spa with the most skilled Massage Therapists and Estheticians in the industry. In 2019 Tammy was able to use her 17 years of experience in advanced skin care and bring her dream to a reality when she opened Austin Urban Retreat, a Day Spa in South Austin, TX.
